Benefits of Compounding

Many people that we come across often ask us what compounding even is.  It is not a term that is familiar to many people anymore in this day and age of grab-it-and-go instant gratification.

However, compounding takes the benefits of modern technology combined with the timeless apothecary traditions and put the two together. This marriage of technique and technology allows for customized medications to be created to meet the unique needs of our patients, and also allows for physicians to move away from “cookie-cutter” medicine and to customize treatment to the needs of the patient and to treat precisely what is going on at the time, no more and no less.

At Promise Pharmacy, we have a staff of highly qualified and trained professionals who are ready and willing to meet your needs.

Why should you choose a compounding pharmacy?

Let’s say you received the best care and treatment with a medication that you were using for quite a while, but the manufacturer discontinued the medication. Your physician has tried you on newer medications that have been put out to treat the same condition, but you just have not been able to receive the same benefits from those treatments. 

Well, if this happens, a compounding pharmacist can recreate that particular medication, so that you can receive the benefits again without having to go through all of the hoops and trials and tribulations of having to figure out what to do now that your medication no longer exists.

Or worse yet, what if you have a lot of allergies?  Many common prescriptions, and even available over-the-counter medications, are made with fillers and binders.  Those same fillers and binders are often the worst enemy for people who have allergies to things such as lactose, gluten, dyes, and preservatives. And then, diabetics who have to be careful about their sugar consumption, also have to avoid medications that are made with sugars. 

But through a compounding pharmacy, those medications can be obtained without those fillers and binders. A formulation can be created with just the active ingredients and using a binding agent that will not aggravate those pesky allergies.  These types of things are our specialty here at Promise Pharmacy.
